Anticipation is sky-high for Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok, which is due out November 3 and looks exceedingly fun. With his spotlight at an all-time high, he may soon sign on for another one of Hollywood’s most eagerly awaited projects: the live-action Akira movie.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle has the umbrella guns, missile-firing cars, and suit-wearing secret agents that you’ve been wanting to see. More surprisingly, the second movie to spring from the Kingsman/The Secret Service comic-book franchise makes a good case for what can be gained in adapting works across different…
It’s been nearly 15 years since one of video games’ most iconic heroines, Lara Croft, hit the big screen... rather unsuccessfully. Now she’s back in the form of a new reboot, and this time the tombs Lara is raiding are looking deadlier than ever.
Hey, remember the 1980s?
Darren Aronofsky’s mother! is grueling and gruesome. It’s a deliberately pretentious art-house movie, cast with some of the biggest stars on the planet. It’s horrifying on many levels—and yet there’s something deeply admirable about it. Whatever the opposite of “crowd-pleaser” is, this movie is it.
As a grim, obsessed loner dedicated to fighting crime in all its forms, Batman is supposed to have no time for love, yet somehow nearly all his live-action movies have had a token love interest. However, the animated Mask of the Phantasm revolves around the idea that Bruce Wayne had a fleeting yet meaningful chance at…
This is what happens when you take too long. Someone beats you to the punch.
Laughs, drama, music, family—the latest trailer for Pixar’s Coco has it all. While the last few trailers did a great job of hiding much of what Coco is, this new one sets up the story and stakes very directly. The result is more drama than before, but also more humor—and still plenty of gorgeous visuals. Check it out.
It has taken a surprisingly long time for Warner Bros. to finalize a deal for Patty Jenkins to come back and direct a second Wonder Woman movie. While that means Warner Bros. didn’t lock her down for a sequel beforehand, it hopefully means Jenkins was able to get a better deal.
Logan was a stunningly great conclusion to Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine series, and the Blu-ray is $5 off right now, if you still haven’t picked it up. We saw it for $12 briefly back in June, but it’s been holding steady at $20 for awhile now.
Mouse Guard is an award-winning comic book series, written and illustrated by David Petersen, about medieval mice protecting their own. Last year, a writer was hired to adapt it—and now, a director may actually be turning its lush world of marauding mice into a movie.
By his own admission, nothing Jared Leto did on set for Blade Runner 2049 was anywhere near as extreme as stuff he has done in the past. However, did Leto have special contacts made so that he wouldn’t have the use of his eyes for the duration of filming? Yes. Yes, he did. Of course he did.
Greetings and/or salutations, people! Welcome to io9's (occasionally weekly) mail column, where I solve the mysteries of the world of nerd-dom to you, both fictional and otherwise. This week: What was Elektra’s deal in The Defenders? Is an evil BB-8 droid a good thing or a bad thing? And, most importantly, who’s to…
Unnamed sources are telling The Hollywood Reporter that the fight for distribution rights to the James Bond films just got two new contenders: Apple and Amazon. Up until now Warner Bros. have been in the lead with the best bid, but let’s be honest. Apple and Amazon have deeper pockets.
It’s one thing to hear about how well Tom Holland immersed himself in the physical role of Spider-Man, performing a good portion of the Homecoming stunts himself. It’s another to see him in action. And it’s damn impressive.
After spending nearly 10 years in the TBD pile at Relativity Studios, the reboot of The Crow has been picked up by Sony Pictures. Does that mean we’ll ever see the damn thing get made? It certainly elevates the chances, at least a little bit.
Coming in September for consoles and October for PC, Destiny 2 is the sequel to Bungie’s multiplatform, life-eating, scifi video game. As sometimes happens, it’s being heralded with a splashy teaser starring actually living, breathing human beings. This one was helmed by ascendant Hollywood talent Jordan Vogt-Roberts,…
If you hate the Star Wars prequel trilogy more than Anakin Skywalker hates sand, you can get a Blu-ray combo with just episodes IV-VI for $28 today, an all-time low.
Now that confirmed white person Ed Skrein has vacated the role of Ben Daimio, a Japanese American federal agent in Hellboy, it’s time for the production to find someone new. While they certainly could go right back and cast another white guy in the role, to really just let the people know that their continued disdain…
Though we’re still a long way from seeing Neil Marshall’s R-rated Hellboy reboot in theaters, the film recently became the focus of a full-blown controversy when the public learned that Major Ben Daimio, a character of Japanese descent from the comics, would be played by Ed Skrein, a white actor. Today, Skrein…
